Business Profile: Royston Vets – Mental Health Awareness Month and Pets

Mental Health Awareness Month & Pets – Owning a pet is not for everyone, it is a huge responsibility. You need to be able to look after them, give them time and commit financially.

However the benefits of owning a pet are immense. May is an excellent time of year to focus on the importance of pets in our lives and the huge impact pets have on our mental health. Pets can provide important emotional support in times of distress and are known to provide psychological benefits such as reducing stress, providing companionship and improving moods.

Our furry friends can help to reduce anxiety and depression by providing physical contact and a sense of security, distracting us from negative thoughts. Not only can pets help improve our moods and stimulate creativity and imagination, they also provide their owners with physical exercise keeping us fit and healthy.
